Levensveranderend Ondernemen (Life-changing Business)
Our destiny is centered on heaven and our calling is here on earth
We believe that there will always be a tension between working for material gain and toiling for "heavenly treasure". The life of Jesus connects these two worlds. Christian entrepreneurs are called to work in this field of tension, while maintaining their integrity to God.
An (entrepreneurial) lifestyle based on the Bible is a radical seed for spiritual change in the marketplace (salt and light). Based on the vision that a company can be seen as a place of worship, I want to help entrepreneurs (both SMEs and freelancers) learn to worship God by using the gifts and talents and the position that you as an entrepreneur got and adopt an attitude of “all we possess we got from God; we share what is already His." Producing genuine disciples within the business world is the heart of the ministry for many entrepreneurs and the key to expanding God's kingdom in this world. Recombining business and ministry means knocking down traditional separation walls and building new strong foundations. It means discipleship for entrepreneurs and new forms for today's mission.
